Historic Virginia Key Beach Park reviews
This is a different kind of beach than you are perhaps expecting. The sandy part is kept natural - so not raked and groomed. Obviously of great benefit to the surrounding nature and I am delighted...

My family loves this park. The Beach is so clean and it's never as crowded as other beaches. It's a beautiful natural setting with an interesting history. The water is always crystal clear and it has a great mangrove tidal creek that my kids love to explore. One downside of this beach is that lately it has become very popular with models and wanna-be models, so there are always camera crews and people posing, essentially restricting access to some areas of the beach or requiring you to go through bushes to get past them. Today, we had two models who found it acceptable to be doing their shoots topless, literally within 50 feet of at least a dozen children. I'm sorry, and I know some people will call me a Karen for this, but this is a family beach and it was just a bit awkward to have topless models romping around making suggestive poses while kids are splashing around close by. There are other beaches to go to if you want to be topless or fully nude. I wish the park management would consider restricting the photo shoots (particularly the naked ones)... maybe only during weekdays when it is less busy?
My fortress of solitude..on week days only tho
